Bean Production with Organic Composting in Rural Anocaya


Anocaya, Bolivia

Alum Project Leader:

Fernando Siles Sainz

Fernando’s project served a small community of 47 families in the Andean highlands near Cochabamaba, Bolivia. Working with 23 families he helped the community incorporate bean cultivation into their agricultural systems so that they would have higher income, improved soil quality, and better nutrition. His project also taught farmers how to prepare organic compost. The families involved were all very grateful and the success of the project has caused more families to become interested in growing beans and using the systems that Fernando introduced.
